3Tera and Nirvanix Partner on New Cloud Computing Solutions for Web Application Developers!

Under the Radar, Mountain View, CA – March 20, 2008 – 3Tera, Inc, the leading innovator of grid computing technology and utility computing services for Web applications, and Nirvanix, the premier “Cloud Storage” platform provider, today announced that the two companies have entered into a partnership to offer new advanced cloud computing solutions, including global distributed storage, content distribution and remote backup capabilities for web application developers.
3Tera and Nirvanix will be integrating the Nirvanix Storage Delivery Network (SDN) into the standard AppLogic catalog of virtual appliances. The first such integration is the inclusion of the Nirvanix SDN as a backup target option within the AppLogic Grid Operating System backup dynamic appliance. The solution enables developers to select the Nirvanix global storage network for the highest performance storage available in the market today. Additionally, by selecting the Nirvanix SDN, AppLogic customers will be able to send backup copies to multiple global locations simultaneously for best practices in disaster recovery. This integrated solution was demonstrated today, live, with a real application grid backing up multiple images and gigabytes of data to the SDN in just a few seconds.

“We are happy to see Under the Radar participants starting new partnerships,” said Debbie Landa, founder and CEO of Dealmaker Media, the organizer of the Under the Radar conference. “Both 3Tera and Nirvanix are new to our Graduate Circle of companies, both are offering exciting new technologies that allow emerging companies to easily build, manage and scale their web applications without the need to build and own complex and expensive data centers. Their announcement today is a proof point for our efforts to facilitate new business opportunities and exchange of innovative ideas.”

“This solution blends together the best of both worlds, Utility Computing and Cloud Storage,” said Jonathan Buckley, Chief Marketing Officer for Nirvanix. “The two companies are coming together to address a very real problem for their customer: How to complement the simplicity and automation of a robust Utility Computing platform, with a cost-disruptive, yet most-reliable layer of data protection based on Cloud Storage.”

“We are excited to work with Nirvanix, because they are bringing innovative high performance storage solutions to web application developers,” said Bert Armijo, senior vice president of sales, marketing and product management, 3Tera, Inc. “We have many users working with large data sets for whom backup and data mobility are serious concerns. Nirvanix performance and reliability provides immediate storage solutions as well as creates new application opportunities.”

Cloud Security: Eliminate humans from the "Information Supply Chain on the Web"

My upcoming article, part - 3 data center predictions for 2009, has a slideshot talking about the transition from the current age to the cloud computing age to eventually the ideation age- the age where you will have clouds that will emote but they will have no internal employees.

Biggest management disasters occur because internal folks are making a mess of the playground.

Om's blog is carrying an article about Cloud security and it is rather direct but also makes a lot of sense:

I don’t believe that clouds themselves will cause the security breaches and data theft they anticipate; in many ways, clouds will result in better security. Here’s why: Fewer humans –Most computer breaches are the result of human error; only 20-40 percent stem from technical malfunctions. Cloud operators that want to be profitable take humans out of the loop whenever possible.Better tools – Clouds can afford high-end data protection and security monitoring tools, as well as the experts to run them. I trust…
